Batpod Photographed, Less Subtle Than Lamborghini

In a move we're assuming the Joker will be unable to duplicate in "The Dark Knight", reader Erich caught the intimidating new Batpod up close and personal on the set of a photoshoot and snapped off a couple pics of his own. While the two-wheeled cohort of the Tumbler probably elicits pleas for mercy from its riders, and looks like some form of elaborate death trap, it also looks pretty badass, even without fancy lighting and movie magic. And yes, we'll be some of those dorks lined up on July 17th waiting for the midnight showing.
